con·fir·ma·tion bi·as



of all men equal in their place

living a life i've assumed

of all men equal will resume

once women rule and take a place

resting tidily upon mans face

to have forgotten the deal so long

of all men equal in their place

am i real or am i food or am i rock

the walls are incredibly mine

is it saying or is it sign

in the routine lies the chase

dive head first into the dirt and die

of all men equal in their place

a voice is like a bad idea

it won't stop changing over time

it hangs upon your neck burning through your chest

wearing the heavy heart to lay the crown to rest

the great raving loony of its time

of all men equal in their place



the monach and the milkweed

i thought i was to blame and i was to blame

but nobody noticed, nobody notices the little things, i was fading

and i rised, and i raised, in the blind i would say, i will smile all the time anyways

they put me to shame, i was ashamed

i was straightened and so frustrated, but in my dreams i was laughing

and i rised, and i raised, in the blind i would say, i will smile all the time anyways

the body always pays when shadows peak on sunny days

bodies smashing, two gods basking, there's no little things once we mated

and i rised, and i raised, in the blind i would say, i will smile all the time anyways

i took to task their ways but words never again seen shape

i almost sold it, i was so distracted by the little scream that almost made it

and i rised, and i raised, in the blind i would say, i will smile all the time anyways



bygone style

you've come to your senses like you're taking stock of all the finer points to your beauty

if you have to worry then it's all a crock knocking off pleasures like it's your duty

this facade is a placard with your name embossed for its own relief it is assuring

and from a nation for which there is no song

and im humming along in my bygone style

with a semantic eye i'll wear a blindfold, enter your terms i'm so agreeable

while i step away to check on the colour of my mood ring

i guess i'm feeling fine in my bygone style

i've learned my lessons so i could take on the cost of buying drinks for all the right people

but now i drink alone wearing my grim reaper costume

plotting at home in my bygone style

and we hide our true feelings so we can take on the loss

of finding love by hating all the right people

you don't want to ruin your one big shot and i'm just puttering along in my bygone style

now, validation you dumb muse, give me the gift i've lost

of how much it rains in the movies

cause i can't remember the reasons for our love now that i'm back on my bygone style



here goes the knees and the back

i'm a lit pipe w/ all my might

out of sight i'm uptight

come wound down come down now

ready, calm and steady, make a choice and start betting all of it

dance in the confetti, oh you'll start forgetting most of it

i'm a wet rag, slowly drying paint

always a slight, a stupid fight

come wound down come down now

ready, calm and steady, make a choice and start betting all of it

dance in the confetti, oh you'll start forgetting most of it



set fire to the moon

don't stop me if you've heard this one, if you want just leave

it's flight every time, the fight's on repeat

it's no thrill going in for the kill

set fire to the moon now that the sun is gone

and why aren't you here, your voice disappeared

it feels real cause we tell ourselves it feels real

we show our colours at night in black and white

we're smoke machines with gas masks on tripping

it plays real cause it pulls feels

set fire to the moon just for something to do

a little collusion for two, rambling til the darkness sees us through

all my spiels are long reels

no matter how hard i try nothing is gonna save me (why lie?)

but you smell like fruits peels and i smells like last meals

let this old blip bleep one last time, a final paradigm

everything is too soon, set fire to the moon

eternally sealed by the real deal



girl

as icy as i'm told my love is pure as gold and all i love is you girl

you know it to be true, all my love's for you, it's more than i can chew girl

anyways, it seems i'm full of joy and pleased just like the way ya do girl

although i always say i'd love you either way, do you love me too girl



trench warfare

ya gone buckwild before you had to cry

the first to speak's the first to be eaten alive

so suck all the fuckin luck into your breath

as if we ever the chance to catch our own depth

you and me in these trenches fighting for the kindness between us

all we know is love and war as we slowly build our defenses

the certain hell of wit and wisdom refines the impact of quoting our own demise

we're spellbound to grind down this picture that's found us untying our knots to see how

we're wound

you and me in these trenches fighting for the kindness between us

all we know is love and war as we slowly build our defenses

a love i'd build and burn bridges for now's just another pastiche chore

when it matters most there's one kind of joke as if there's a time whenever we won't

you and me in these trenches fighting for the kindness between us

all we know is love and war as we slowly build our defenses



the great director

we loved to take our time take our time take our time reminiscing life in love in the wild

never missing out convinced that we were viable, channeling every time that we laughed

and cried

we stood under the lights and we thought it was so bright

but i rewrote all your lines changing baby's to maybe's

and all the yours to mines, once crazy was amazing

but it was a fucking waste of time expanding on the mood

to change the goddamn light to keep fucking with the zoom

for the outcome to feel right we needed a new attitude

replacing all the wrongs with right, the bad gets what's coming to him

and the darkness must feel light as if there's nothing to it

we stood under the lights and we thought it was so bright

all the goddamn while trying to keep it all in scope

as all the stuntmen die and the stars they just can't cope

and the pyrotechnics fly, the make-up starts to flake

and the actor's camera shy, give me a fucking break

we loved to take our time take our time take our time reminiscing life in love in the wild

never missing out convinced that we were viable, channeling every time that we laughed

and cried

we stood under the light and we thought it was so bright



butterflies

oh my heavy hanging head is low, it's the highest fruit i have hanging

all the endings i'm forgetting woah, all ending where i'm stoned

in all matters i am all alone, am i delighted? maybe

always ever never ending but i don't know, of my wish the wildest was love

i am still by us in love

i am still biased to love

in rebirth or in silence it's retold, of my wish the wildest was love

tell your friends and tell the world it's overblown, i am still by us in love

into this empty world ya now behold, i am still biased to love

turn your back on the sunset baby and let it roll, of my wish the wildest was love

i am still by us in love

i am still biased to love

i am still by us in love



slow motions

and sometimes you need a little love little love a little love a little love

cause maybe time it leaves you a little lost a little lost a little lost the lesser off

and this time you can't just shake it off shake it off shake it off

i don't know why this time maybe not maybe not maybe not

i asked the dignified ladies will we won't we

i asked the weather complete me, wide eyed freely

i asked to ball and chain me, i'm done complaining

i asked what makes him happy when he gets lucky

and sometimes you need a little love little love little love

cause maybe time it leaves you a little lost little lost the lesser off

and this time you can't just shake it off shake it off shake it off

i don't know why this time maybe not maybe not maybe not



don't

i can't look you in the eye i know that you've been crying all day

i came in from the rain to say i don't think that i am here to stay

every time i try to talk you pick apart my lines and move on

past the point of blame i'm opening the lines to make lanes

it's the sun shining in your eyes on fire all the time

i'm afraid to knock on your door you don't like me anymore

you answered anyway to say everything will be ok

i thought it was a crime to waste my time and have no shame

i've found places to hide and ways to say i don't know what to say

it's the sun shining in your eyes on fire all the time

it's the sun shining in your eyes on fire all the time

we compare the flames that made us cry and also made us new

all of which remains the same if soon we don't decide to choose

whether we want to blame ourselves or not for keeping lit the flames

the wanton barren plains of existential meaningless to-do

it's the sun shining in your eyes on fire all the time

it's the sun shining in your eyes on fire all the time

i've got a lot of time to waste i guess i'll face it alone

you think i have to wait, stop awhile and have no play

but every time i try to do a little good you say don't



women is the energy of the world

keep yourself tongue tied how you missed her crying all the time

keep yourself hog tied how you fucked her it's all in your mind

take her for a long drive ol romanticizer fear in both of your eyes

save her for the last line a reminder a prayer for every kind

women is the energy of the world
